Hi Keith,

The only reason for printing the PDF is to make data input easier.  It 
simulates having an input document at your side.

The point about the default buttons is a good one.  I'd completely 
missed that.  It's too late for me to change now, unfortunately - but 
thanks for pointing it out.  It's something I'll remember to consider in 

It's a trivial little experiment, really, but it will - hopefully - 
provide some pointers for future work.  An MSc is not really high level 
research.  It's just an academic exercise, to be honest, that just 
pushes human knowledge onwards a very small amount.  Maybe someone will 
pick up on it and turn it into real research; perhaps for a PhD.

Many thanks for your participation.
